Relatives of a missing Russian student have appealed for her to contact them.

Yulia Solodyankina, 22, disappeared three weeks ago and is due to graduate from Edinburgh University on Monday.

The physics student was last seen at Glasgow's Buchanan Street bus station at about 16:55 on 7 June.

In a statement released through police, Miss Solodyankina's mother, Ekaterina, said: "There are no hopeless situations in life. Everything can be overcome."

She added: "Do you remember, I told you that I love you whatever you do, whatever happens to you?

"Come back, if you hear us. We love you very much.

"We love you. You are our life."

CCTV images show Miss Solodyankina in Glasgow having travelled on a Citylink bus from Edinburgh's St Andrew Square at 15:25.

The student, who speaks fluent English with a strong Russian accent, is 5ft 6in, with a small mole on her left cheek.

Her ears are pierced and she wears a number of rings on her fingers, including a distinctive thumb ring shaped like a small spoon.

She was last seen wearing a dark coat with belt, a dark shoulder bag, a red and orange coloured scarf, grey trousers and brown shoes with white laces.
